somethings looking for a better life, better economy. promises made during the revolution. it never came through. the violence has decreased. nothing what we saw over the weekend. but you have people here defying the president's declaration of a curfew and emergency rule where we are in port said. the curfew is technically supposed to go in place in a few hours. but people have told the president, we know there is a curfew. we are protesting anyway. clearly defying him. >> who is in control on the streets? when you look at the pictures you say there is good news that the violence isn't what it was. is there a sense they will continue between the government and protesters that's playing out? lost the signal. we're going to try to get back to him as soon as we can. the turmoil in egypt. real concern for hillary clinton. she talked to cnn about those challenges and what she thinks egypt's struggling new government needs to do. >> it's difficult going from a closed regime and essentially one man rule to a democracy that's trying to be born and learn to walk. there are clear lessons. you have
the end. that's for sure. >> oh, yeah. >> john berman, many thanks to you. >>> let's turn to the economy and new and encouraging signs this rng mmorning, more evidenc jobs market is recovering, albeit agonizingly slowly. 157,000 jobs were added last month and later this hour, wall street begins the day a little giddy. the dow celebrating its best january gains since 1994, and it all comes on the heels of president obama disbanding his jobs council, a group of business leaders who advised him on the economy. republicans were quick to seize on the news, scoffing at the white house's handling of the council and the economy overall. >> if the white house spent nearly as much time trying to actually fix the economy as it did claiming it was fixed and then finding excuses and sca scape goats when its premature announcements were false i suspected the economy would be better than it is doing here today. >> christine romans, is he right? the unemployment rate is still what, 7.9% now. >> yes, 7.9%, 157,000 jobs created in january. that's modest hiring. that is an economy that is healing still slo
. you know, the average investor is seeing the economy make small improvements. we're seeing improvements in the housing market, consumer spending is going up. i spoke with one trader who was a little concerned that this is an artificial rally system littlit stimulated by the fed. >> you can say we have already been here. but you can say we came from the depths of despair, we're much higher but the thing that will cause people to continue to to be concerned is it still ahead of itself. is there a correction coming because the fed created this -- manufactured this rally. >> but, brooke, you know, think of the stock market as a big old rubber band. as much as it went down in 2009, march of 2009, the low for the dow was 6500, now we're seeing it bounce back almost to 14,000. you know how that is. what goes up, i don't want to say it, brooke. >> darn that economic gravity. alison kosik, thank you very much. we want to keep talking about this. we were thinking why doesn't wall street match what we're seeing on main street. we'll talk about that with steven moore, wall street journ
report, the jobs report was very strong. it showed that 157,000 jobs were added to the economy in january. and sure the number came in a bit soft. what investors were looking at were the stronger revisions higher in november and december for those jobs numbers. so that was encouraging and that really got the dow over that level. but the focus yet today is on dow 14,000 because it's been five years since stocks were at this level and the optimists about this say it shows just how far we've come. >> remember, this? march 1999, the height of the dot com boom, dow hit 14,000 for the first time. >> it was a big deal when we hit 10,000, we gave out hats. these are big psychological levels, they're crescendos. >> fast forward to 2006, the height of the housing boom. dow 12,000. nine months after that, 14,000. but we wouldn't see that threshold again for a long time. the housing market was already crumbling, recession was lurking. now five years later, we're back and the returns staggering. >> reporter: bank stocks buoyed, bounced back. housing stocks through the roof, the rally is driven by you,
reports, 157,000 jobs were added to the economy, but the way wall street sees it, it came in soft. wall street is looking at it at a more broader view, and they are looking at the momentum from november and december, and you are seeing a stronger trend continue, so that's good news obviously. but then again there has been an underlying optimism already in the market, and that's being fueled by the federal reserve. and that's buying up mortgage backed treasury and securities, and that's driving interest rates lower so the best game in town as far as investors see it to make money is here in the stock market, and it's driving investors to the stock market. and what moved the needle, it was the jobs number, and how the next milestone for the dow will be the all-time high, and first we will see if it can hold at 14000 at the close, and then we will see what happens. >> how much confidence do we have in this rally? >> some say not much, and others say stocks are making a comeback and the economy is doing that as well. one well known economist talks about this, and here is what he had to say.
to negotiate a bigger grand bargain, as the president would like to have, that the economy could tilt back into recession, we've seen the stock market go up, encouraging signs of job growth. the president says that could be at risk when you have federal budget cuts, true? >> the cbo, congressional budget office came out with a report ten minutes ago that said the effects of the sequester would retard growth by 1.3 percentage groups. the cbo said, if we get rid of the sequester, we're not going to grow at gang buster rates. yes, the sequester will not be good for the economy but the president, i suspect, will try to do, and definite hawks advising, we can replace the sequester with a smarter strategy that is a more gradual deficit reduction plan. he's going disagree with the republicans on how to do that. he's going to want revenue to be part of it. republicans will say no thank you. >> we'll get the president if a minute and a half. white house gave us a two-minute warning. i would say it's a short-term for the president and the congress not doing what they're supposed to do pass a budget

. now is the time to do this so we can strengthen our economy and strengthen our country's future. think about it. we define ourselves as a nation of immigrants. that's who we are, in our bones. the promise we see in those who come here from every corner of the globe, that's always been one of our greatest strengths. it keeps our workforce young. it keeps our country on the cutting edge. and it helped build the greatest economic engine the world has ever known. after all, immigrants helped start businesses like google and yahoo. they created entire new industries that created new jobs and new prosperity for our citizens. in recent years, one in four high tech startups in america were founded by immigrants. one in four new small business owners were immigrants including right here in nevada. folks who came here seeking opportunity and now want to share that opportunity with other americans. but we all know that today we have an immigration system that is out of date, and badly broken. a system that is holding us back instead of helping us grow our economy and strengthen our middle class.
. they spent something like 25% to a third of their gdp on their military. a percentage of their economy. some had speculated that one of the reasons they're pursuing a nuclear weapons program, if we have nuclear weapons, we need fewer troops, fewer conventional weapons which are soaking up all this money in their economy. but, you know, in the long run, we don't know -- north cresaw the most closed country in the world. we all have guesses and we've all been wrong in the past but i think one thing that comes from this what we're doing right now isn't working. the sanctions aren't working and we'll have to start talking to them or doing something else to put this on a different path. >> dr. jim walsh, thank you very much for joining us. >> thank you. >>> one of the most infamous monarchs in british history may have been found buried beneath a parking lot in england. we're about to find out if it's the real final resting place of richard iii. >>> plus, there's a new place for you to get parenting news. i'm talking to host kyra phillips about her brand-new show. so if ydead battery,t tire, need
. a state that he carried by more than six points over mitt romney despite an imploding economy there. any guesses who kept that state blue? the president is pitching a comprehensive immigration rewrite that may sound a lot like the senate plan that was unveiled yesterday. however, it will not sound identical. cnn's brianna keilar joins me from the white house now. so will the president propose something completely different than what the senate has already done, and is there a risk of confusing everyone? >> reporter: no, i don't think he'll propose something entirely different from what the senate has done. so far, ashleigh, the white house is welcoming the senate plan. we're expecting that the president will highlight a proposal that's actually been out for almost two years at this point. his blueprint for immigration reform. but when it was put out in 2011, it was seen much more as a statement, i think, ahead of the election more than a genuine push for immigration reform. he didn't really push it forward in any real way. so we're expecting to hear him highlight that, and i will tell yo
on >>> the u.s. business economy shrank in the last quarter, something completely unexpected. alison kosik is at the new york stock exchange with what this means. >> carol, we expected lousy, we certainly didn't expect this lousy and there are three big reasons, the economy contracted or took a step back during october, november and december of last year. for one, government spending plunged and that's mostly because of a pullback in defense spending. also, there were fewer exports. europe is a huge factor in that, just this week, we learned that growth in spain and the uk is also contracting and that means europe is buying less stuff from us. third, business inventories dropped and that means companies bought less stuff from manufacturers to put on their shelves, the fiscal cliff is likely a big factor in this. spending cuts caused a lot of businesses and the government to pull back and this is a big deal, carol because it's the first time since 2009 that we've seen the economy contract. >> all right, alison kosik reporting live from the new york stock exchange. >
